We celebrated the day in a full house, with lively participation of women from the community, and our table of refreshment was overflowing with food all the women had brought along to share. The idea of the event was to introduce the Club, Yes-Afrika e.V., and ourselves as women members of the club, to whom the women from the community can...

“I’m an all-rounder”, says Ruvimbo; from an early experience in theatre, and runner at events, to events organizing, from jewelry and dress design to interior design, to mentoring youths and generally “bringing people together”, all this is part of “the one thing” she does. Ruvimbo is a diligent observer and sharp analyst of the society around her. Here she shares with us her views and her experiences of life in Harare and life in Bulawayo, and compares her experiences in Europe...
